I had a back massage today and this was performed by Andrea. It was such a good experience and Andrea made me feel comfortable at all times! Highly recommended, 10 stars service.

I had a Luxurious Ayurvedic massage booked. I have had this treatment at the retreat several times before so I knew exactly what to expect. However the lady who the treatment was with refused to cater for my request. Having had the treatment several times I know you can request the pressure you would like. I requested quite a firm massage. She told me that it was a soft massage and SHE would prefer to keep it as that. As it was there was no pressure to the massage at all, I know there are elements of stroking however this was the entire massage. The Indian head massage which was included - again fair from the level I have experienced previously. At one point she was literally just moving my hair. There was absolutely no massage involved. She must have went round my eyes 20/30 times, frankly it was more of an annoyance then a relaxation. Bright lights were left on throughout so even with my eyes closed light was giving me a headache. The way she spoke to me left me feeling frustrated before we even started & the whole experience was far from relaxing & rather upsetting. I felt like I had been told off or if I was asking for something I wasn’t allowed. I booked online so the therapist was selected by the system & not myself. There was no mention online that she would only give a very soft , barely there massage. It took a month for the owner of the salon to come back to my request for a refund or partial refund of my £85( even though I raised the issue as soon on the day). The request was refused as “I had received the treatment”, not the treatment booked & paid for but still! I won’t be returning here - having been a regular for a number of years. I would suggest anyone looking for a message to actually help with their issues - stress, upset etc avoid this so called retreat at all costs ! …

I just had my first massage with the Ayurvedic centre and I cannot describe bow happy I am for making the choice of the Abhyanga full body massage and for choosing this place. The receptionist was very warm, very welcoming and helpful. My therapist was Caroline and she performed one of the most professional session I have ever had. She found all spots, she gave good advices, she created a beautiful athmosphere and experience. I cannot find a fault in my session. Thank you Caroline and I hope to see you soon.…
